Bamboo and Environment

Bamboo cultivation

An environmentally friendly crop with a low impact on the environment.

It naturally contains antibacterial and antifungal substances that prevent the development of pests and do not require the use of expensive pesticides, which are harmful to health and the environment.

Bamboo can also be used in Environmental Restoration and Redevelopment projects including:

  • Pollution: 1 hectare of bamboo absorbs 16 times more CO2 than a traditional forest.
  • Fine Dust Filtration: Its leaves have filtering properties and act as a magnet, capturing and intercepting micro particles of dust and dust.
  • Hydrogeological risk: Being an extremely rustic plant, bamboo is able to adapt to even the most difficult and risky terrain, as it has a root system that keeps the soil compact, curbing erosion by water and preventing landslides.
  • Phytoremediation: Bamboo has the ability to absorb and transform contaminants making them less toxic and can be used for the remediation of contaminated water, soils, and sediments.
  • Windbreak: Bamboo is a fast-growing, easily adaptable evergreen with a strong root system and very good flexibility and therefore has all the properties to be successfully used as a windbreak.
